Koy McDermott

Millennial Leadership & Performance Trainer | Leaders Inspire Leaders


It’s not often that you find the rare blend of a natural trainer and entertainer, but with Koy McDermott you get both.

In spite of the debilitating stutter he battled through for the majority of his life, Koy inspires his audiences to embrace and double down on their strengths.

He spoke to his first large group at the age of 12. He vividly remembers struggling on stage, but he uses that moment as one of the turning points that changed his life.

Koy is the founder of Leaders Inspire Leaders, a media agency for leadership and performance, and co-founder of the LevelUp Institute, a career accelerator for First Generation College Students.

Through his companies and professional career Koy has impacted over 60,000 leaders, trained and developed over 12,000 students and is on a mission to inspire everyone he meets to reach their full potential.
